You can thank Silverchair for helping spawn the band Sick Puppies, but you have to thank Florida novelist Carl Hiaasen for the name.
It was a dozen years ago when Shimon Moore and Emma Anzai met in the music room of their Sydney, Australia, high school and discovered their mutual love of the aforementioned Aussie teen Rock band. The duo jammed on Green Day and Silverchair covers with Moore on drums and Anzai on guitar. After they added drummer Chris Mileski, Moore switched to guitar and Anzai to bass. Moore happened to notice a disproportionate number of people reading Hiaasen’s Sick Puppy at the time, and thus the Indie Rock/Emo trio was christened.
They play Bogart's with Rev Theory and Adelitas Way. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
